Recipe: Chicken with Star Anise and Plum Sauce

I was a bit bored of the usual taste of soy sauce-based chicken, so I upped the recipe to make a more flavorful and tasty chicken dish. The flavor is very strong and it is perfect to eat with a bowl of warm rice.



Ingredients

1 whole chicken, cut into chunks
1 cup plums, pureed
4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 stick cinnamon
a handful of star anise

Directions

Marinate chicken with all the ingredients for a few hours. Let it sit in the fridge until ready. Heat up cooking pan and simmer the marinated chicken until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the sauce thickens. You can add a bit of water if the sauce has reduced and thickened but chicken is not yet cooked. 

Bon app├ętit!
